So there's something wrong with my car...when I start it for first time everyday it starts fine...but then after I drive for a while turn it off n try to start it up it wont start. Always has to sit for hour or two till it starts again. Ppl are telling me its the fuel pump going out. Its $130.00 for a new one...I just don't want to go buy one of those and that not be the problem. I can't afford to take it to a shop. :( Anyone have any ideas what it could be?

When it won't start, try squirting starting fluid in the intake. If it fires, the problem is fuel related.

I would try using starter fluid to see if the problem is fuel related
